About me



My reviews:
My reviews are primarily for myself. I used to review for magazines, but now it's very much for myself.

Some of my reviews can get quite long and I make no apologies for that. If a review is long it means the book generated a reaction in me and I wanted to write about it.

If you read one of my reviews and feel you want to discuss the book concerned, feel free to drop me a comment on my profile page.

Doing fancy things on LT: http://www.librarything.com/topic/177029#

About my libraryMy library has accrued over approximately forty years. The majority of the books are in my study and only a few, listed as, "Read but un-owned", are no longer in my possession.

Umberto Eco stated (and I paraphrase) that the value of a mine is in the un-mined ore, and that the value of a library is in the unread books, i.e. the unmined knowledge. On that basis my library is very valuable.

As with many LTers I tend to buy books at a rate that exceeds my reading capacity. I do not feel any shame in this, only an ever growing hole in my pocket.

You will find a wide range of subject matter in my books with high numbers of books in the horror and science fiction genres.
